|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm on this site not only to post my own work for others to read and enjoy, but also to help others who wish to improve their writing skills. I love reading stories that have no real plot, especially if it's a crack fic or just fluff. If I happen to find words or phrases that just don't work, I'll edit them out or edit them to fit. I don't like to interfere with people's writing styles or their own stories. So, if they strongly disagree with my editing, then they can go right ahead and change it back. I won't be offended and I won't mind at all.
I want to help people improve their writing skills and/or help them out of the nastiness that they call writers' block.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm really good at finding an array of words that have one meaning. My friends call me their human thesaurus. I like having a word choice so, if I have to repeat an idea, I'm not just droning on and on and on and on and on and on, etc.
Also, I'm a complete Grammar Nazi. That means commas, semicolons, word usage, subject-verb agreement, etc. I don't care if you have UBER-errors in your story; that's why I'm here!
I am good at writing in all three tenses, but present is my strongest. I've been writing for about four or five years now and find that you can really capture the reader's attention and reel them in when you write in the present tense.
I can also write in any point of view, so if you have trouble with that, then I can help you.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have hyperactive fingers and sometimes over-type or type something that I don't mean to. A lot of times, I won't catch it, so be warned!
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like reading romance and humor. I can deal with some angst and such every now and again, but I like to keep with the happy fluff, especially yaoi. :) I like anything Anime or Videogames. Kingdom Hearts is love.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I REALLY don't like stupid pairings, unless you've stated that it's a crack-fic. I don't like stories where the characters are always OOC.
